The Side Project Theatre Company, located in Rogers Park, offers an engaging and eclectic repertory of exceptional theater. Last years Cut to the Quick presented incredible programs of one-act plays that combined some of Chicago’s most established theater professionals with some of its freshest faces. The result was exciting theater that was rewarding for audiences and artists alike.

The Side Project continues this adventure with four thrilling offerings:

The Rocks

By Mark Young

Directed by Anna C. Bahow

20-somethings Beth and Amber talk about sex, love and all the stuff in between. Don’t miss director Anna C. Bahow and playwright Mark Young’s follow-up to the side project’s 2006 smash hit, New Orleans (named one of the Chicago Tribune’s Top Five Fringe Shows of 2006).
